I’m a British-Bengali freelance food writer and food maker. I cook everyday and I love it. I started this blog 4 years ago and have the first of two books published by Kyle Books with the same name out now. The Metro said “multifarious influences give (my) dishes a freshness others lack” and the Mail Online voted it their food book of the week.
I’ve written for various publications including The Guardian, Le Cool Magazine, Fork Magazine, BBC Good Food, Eat Me Magazine, Channel 4 Food and Fire and Knives Food Quarterly. I’ve also been featured in Red Magazine, the Evening Standard, The Independent, Olive Magazine, Amelia’s Magazine and Waitrose Kitchen Magazine. I’ve also been interviewed live by Tom Parker Bowles for his LBC radio show, Robert Elms for his BBC London show. I’ve dined on bull’s pizzle pie on Jimmy and Jamie’s food fight and judged dishes for “The Perfect” on the Good Food Channel.
Under my belt I’ve got a food and drink journalism qualification and a Broadcast Journalism postgraduate diploma; along with a few other handy badges. I’ve worked as a researcher on a popular cookery programme and also spent a couple of years teaching English in (and eating my way around) Japan.
I decided to start this blog to stop boring my friends and family about breakfast, lunch and dinner and to bore you instead.
My name is Rejina and I am a food geek.
